Snakes and Tron

Two cool things happened today.

One: I totally ran outside to our chicken coop with our Co2 gun and shot a snake. I was so pumped! OK so I was just sitting upstairs in my room being all calm by painting with my new acrylic paints and easel while listening to "Saltwater Room" by Owl City when suddenly mom calls me saying, "Bethany! Come down here. There's a snake."

Out of pure excitement I literally jump out of my chair, fly down the stairs singing an eighties song real loudly, grab the gun, and dash out the door to the chicken coop for my first killing. You won't believe how happy I was. It was a rat snake - harmless to humans, scary to chickens. It was a long, fat dude. Black with yellow spots all down its scaly back. Eventually I shot it and it kept wriggling around and giving me a hard time then it zoomed towards me and I kept firing and eventually I had to use a hoe and start slamming it towards its..... ok I won't go into any farther. I'll bet you're already grossed out from given mental images. It was pretty bloody... Well *clears throat* Anyways....

Two: I saw Tron. OK, I will now give my brief and honest opinion below in a simple review.

First forty minutes were absolutely amazing. Everything was woven together perfectly, and my attention was completely captured. But after the best scene,"the grid" game, was over, the main character Sam joined up with a girl named Cora to go visit somebody (I won't spoil it for you) and things immediately went downhill from there. Action then no longer existed; excitement came and fleeted, leaving behind nothing but a cheek-on-wrist and bored, yawning Bethany. The rest just had far too much predictable dialogue, a few plot holes, and an unsatisfying ending to pull it all off. The special effects might be one reason that makes Tron worth a shot for many, but after a while, the constant navy color and neon-blue glow that was on everything just got old to look at, and people (or programs) getting shattered like red glass when killed was very also repetitive. The one thing that deserves the most praise is the music. Programmed by the ever-famous techno lord Daft Punk, the music had a blend of an orchestra style similar to that of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard while still having Daft Punk's own unique robot/dance beats to the mix. I am considering purchasing that album soon.

So overall rating? I would give it 2 and a half stars out of a possible five.

Want more movie reviews? Believe me I'm a harsh critic and I'd love to do more. :) Let me know, k?

Take..... Onnnn Meeeeee

OK guys, my favorite song right now is "Take On Me" by a-ha. It works wonders, I'm not kidding, turn it on when Daniel Thomas is screaming and throwing a fit and magically, he stops crying and starts dancing. If you guys haven't heard it, it's probably because it's an 80's song, and you youngins are too tiny to know it exists! LOL.

Yet again, I haven't been keeping up with my blog.

LAAAAAAAAME. I know. I've probably caused all of you to lose hope in my updates and therefore stopped checking my blog. I understand. But now that I'm back, pretty please come back! *Pulls out puppy dog pout*

So, there has been no progress so far in my story building either. If I don't do something about it soon, Onyx will throw a fit and cause havoc upon planet.... Urbs. Guess you'll have to wait till I pour out my imagination on paper and have you read my awesomeness. :P Don't worry guys, my story is comin' along! Well at some point it will.... be, uh, comin' along...

I have new art that will soon be posted on FaceBook! Wanna see a famous anime character, Dr. Pepper pint bottle, or a girl with firey red hair? Check back on my FB page! (After Lent is over)

I also have a slideshow of pix of me with friends, etc. that will soon hit FB and possibly Blogger too. I also hope to start up some new AMVs and Dubs of animes, etc.

Etc. Etc. Etc.

Well guys this is my latest update, check back for more!
